Message from the Boss...

I will be out on personal days Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. I will be out of state but can be reached by email. If you need an administrator to attend a P/T Conference let us know immediately and we will put you on our schedule. I will be available for conferences on Thursday.


No PLC's next week due to P/T Conferences. PTO will be providing Zaxby's for Tuesday's meal with desserts. Thursday's will be Guadalajara. They are doing a fajita bar.

It will included chips and salsa, 1/2 Chicken 1/2 Steak fajita's with all the fixings (rice, beans, lettuce, tomatoes etc....). PTO will be providing the desserts.


If you would like, as a Team, to have an Honor Assembly or Awards Assembly for the 1st 9 weeks you are welcome to have one. I am not scheduling one for the whole building. I will look at scheduling something at the semester or end of year. If you do plan on scheduling one for the 1st 9 weeks be sure to let us know so we do not have them scheduled at the same time and so that you have use of the gym.


**In your mailbox you will receive a Parent Newsletter that provides our parents with information about Middle School South. Attached to it is a signature sheet. Parents will need to receive the informational sheet and sign the signature page. This is a required piece for Report to the Public. Thank you


Have a restful weekend!

Love you,

Casey Hanna

REPORT CARDS

Report cards will be sent home with students on Monday, October 17th.

ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Lessons for the next month's Advisory

Message from the Counselors:

The Bounceback folder was shared in Google Docs which includes Unit 1 and 2 support activities for the new Bounceback guidance curriculum that the counselors will be presenting to students this year. There is also a file in this folder that contains the "Bounceback" acronym that explains what "Bounceback" stands for if you would like to take a look at it.

This is the same information (black line masters) that Mrs. Homsher talked to the Advisory committee about. Rather than make paper copies/packets we thought it might be more convenient to provide information to all Advisory teachers this way so you can make copies as needed. Some of you may use more of this material than others for your class needs.

The handouts are numbered by Unit/Lesson. The counselors will share with teachers which unit will be covered each month so teachers will know which activities can be used to support their classes.

Please use any materials you feel fit the needs of your class. This material is only meant to support the lessons given by the counselors (if you feel follow up is needed for your particular class) and to supplement the Advisory curriculum you already have.

We hope you find this information useful. Thank you for your support with Bounceback!


6TH GRADE will be starting with Unit 2 in the Resource Book which emphasizes the "bouncing back" from bad things happening to our students. Unit 1 is about Core Values which will be addressed the second semester.

CURB APPEAL

I still have some frames available- We need to fill them! The frame size is a 27 X 40.


There has been 8 frames added to the hallways for displays. We need clubs, team, or organizations to decorate these frames. If you create a pic college with Wal-green's you can add numerous about your club, team or organization.


Picture shows example of what they look like. If you are interested let me know.
